Pretty atypical outdoorsy home movie here with the bonus addition of a brief glimpse of Walt Disney Studios in the late 30s. And also anything retro vegas is always a hoot. But other then that, typical.

Subject: Mostly Zion & Bryce Canyon
Nice quality color film. It's not mentioned in the description, but most of this film shows Zion and Bryce Canyon in southern Utah. Here is my shotlist:

00:05 Mexican market & bar, possibly Tijuana
00:14 WW2 era Navy vessels probably San Diego
00:58 Produce market
01:19 Street scenes in LA (color shots of late '30s cars)
01:50 Walt Disney Productions (historic shots)
02:08 Palm-lined road & citrus orchard
02:29 Joshua Tree area
02:56 Death Valley
03:23 Las Vegas (night shots of neon signs)
03:40 Boulder Dam
04:30 Lake Mead
04:59 Suburban street & house
05:12 Desert scenes
05:41 Zion Park, Utah
10:14 Bryce Canyon, Utah
13:30 Grand Canyon from South Rim
15:06 San Francisco Peaks north of Flagstaff AZ
15:14 end

I would estimate the date of this film as circa 1940, so the stated date of 1939 is plausible.
